    With the possible exception of “delight”, I assume that the list is devoid of any feelings by design? Also curious why I laugh didn’t make it in?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      It was a no laughter day when it was written.

    Lost … My heart, my soul, my dreams, my passions, my beliefs, my faith, my hope, my desires, my outlook, my nature, my feelings, my love, my friendship, my brain, my thoughts, my goodwill, my dignity, my trust, my life.

    I have … my hurt, my anger, my frustration, my shame, my guilt, my damage, my wounds, my bamboozlement, my brain fog, my 1am insomnia.

    1. NarcAngel says:

      Theyre not lost. They just took cover so they couldnt be destroyed. Uncover, enjoy, and share them again.

      1. Original Overthinker says:

        Thank you that has just made me cry… The 2 biggies I missed (brain fog! I am getting worse not better) My happiness and Joy … I wish I could wipe my mind! X x x x x

    Verbs. Nothing but verbs.

      And not a noun to eat.

      1. MB says:

        “And not a noun to eat” That made me giggle HG. I love your humor!

          Is that your Halloween pic? If so, I have to put up mine! We went opposite directions!

          1. MB says:

            WS, I was a unicorn of course. I had white wings and was corrected that Pegasus had wings, not unicorns. I don’t care. I love those wings. I will wear them as often as possible. And glitter is life! My unicorn tail accidentally dipped in the toilet and made its way to the trash fairly early Halloween morning. We all had the best time laughing about the demise of my tail!

          2. windstorm says:

            I was a witch with green skin, purple hair and large black hat with spiders hanging off, spider earrings a long black dress and witches broom. I sat on my daughter’s porch next to a big black caldron full of candy under hanging spider webs full of spiders. Had 112 trick or treaters. 6 adults jumped in shock when I moved. They thought I was a decoration! It was a ton of fun!!

          3. NarcAngel says:

            I think next year for Halloween I’ll be Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada. I’ll give everyone the once over, drop something in the bag, and dismiss them with: That’s all.

            Wait…thats what I do now……

          4. windstorm says:

            😝😝😝. I was thinking, “Wait, isn’t that her now?”

          5. MB says:

            What a great movie NA! I haven’t watched that one in a while.

      2. Kathy Mor says:

        I miss you when you are gone! I love your humor!

  4. kel says:

    Clever! I like. But what do you mean by, “I slash”?

  5. Melissa says:

    Written as a true narcissist

  6. MommyPino says:

    This makes me wonder, the absence of emotions that essentially make us feel vulnerable humans such as sadness, love, empathy and happiness must make narcissists feel like machines. Looking at everyone else as appliances must be a type of projection as well because narcs do not have the stuff that makes them feel humans.
    So we are basically appliances that complement the narcissist machinery to make them efficient and running at full capacity (in their mindsets).

    1. Jess says:

      That sounds legit. In the end, it’s all mirroring and projection both ways. Fuel is the goal for both sides as well.

        I am but a toaster… albeit a sleek, white model. Great order, good springs, rounded edges and no dings. Now where’s my electricity supply?
